    It should have have been noted by Mr.President that Governor Romney changed his tax proposal right there during the campaign. For me it should have been handled as "Governor Romney you can not be dishonest to citizens of USA and you can not come here and change what you have been saying for the course of your campaign and that if you want to be the President then you owe it the people of this country to be honest to them". Mr President should have called him on this issue and not let it go so easy.
